These lesson plans and activities provided the framework for students to analyze songs for the powerful messages that are contained within the lyrics. As the students work in groups to analyze a variety of song lyrics, they will also be practicing the use of a variety of "Monitoring Comprehension" reading strategies (class anchor included). As well, students will have the opportunity to self and peer evaluate their participation and contribution during the group work stage using the attached evaluation form. After working in small groups and then sharing as a whole class...students will have the opportunity to create their own powerful messages for change through song lyrics. The final piece to this task is the "Scrammy" awards where students will be evaluated by you for their presentation of their final piece, but they will also be participating in the music awards with their peers. (Presentation rubric and Student award Ballot are being uploaded separately for free) All self and peer evaluation forms are included in this file. Enjoy!
